Hockey fun for old and young! thumbnail

THE annual hockey match between the Antrim Under 30s and the Over 30s attempted to answer an age old question - which is best, maturity or young legs?
That poser is yet to be solved, however, as the enjoyable game ended in an exciting 8-8 draw!
Lists of players promising to appear flooded in as usual, but, not unexpectedly, only the stalwarts turned up to play on what was a bright, dry but cold morning.
The match eventually started almost an hour behind schedule and it turned out to be an enjoyable high-scoring battle between youth
and experience.
Johnny McMeekin opened the scoring in the sixth minute from a strong edge of circle drive and within two minutes Dean Wilson crashed the ball into the net at the other end to level up the scores.
The pattern was set for a thrilling end to end game which put both keepers to the test.
